As one of the world’s largest investors, we are aware of our responsibility for our own as well as our customers’ money. We seek sustainable investments and use our understanding of ESG issues to reduce risk in our investment portfolios.

We are embedding ESG issues into our third-party asset management business, and offering sustainable products and services to our customers. Our two subsidiaries Allianz Global Investors (AGI) and PIMCO have different regional focuses and investment strategies. However, embedding environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into asset management, and offering corresponding products and services, is common practice in both.
